And it's working, I voted for Obama in 2008. My first election, I was proud. I don't like the ass  ...

We need tax increases to pay for it.

There have been so many tax cuts that now half the country is not paying any federal income tax.

That's part of the problem right there.

Too many tax cuts.

You just hate the poor.  Be honest.

i grew up on a farm in china in the 70's, i was poor, i worked hard while other partied. i don't hate poor, i hate unmotivated people who is in the best country to move up in the world and just waste themselves. while they still to this day blame what this country did to their ancestors 100 years ago. yes, it was wrong i am not defending that, but time have changed a lot since those days.
take another example, when an asian family migrate to this country, with little money in their pocket. yet they stay together as a family, both parents work incredibly hard and their children goes to prestigious colleges. sounds like a dream. it happens all the time.
I love hard work and ethic's. i fear you don't understand.
btw, bruce lee was my hero growing up, he worked harder than anyone i know.

I understand all that, and I too, have a strong work ethic.

What you have to understand is the environment that some people grow up in is extremely dysfunctional.  And government programs designed to help has just made situations worse.

The mentality in some of these neighborhoods is that there is no use to even try - that success just CANT happen to them.  It's this defeatist mentality that needs to be overcome.  But if you are told since a small child the only thing you can hope for in life is maybe a factory job or a janitor, than why try?

I can't tell you how many times I have been told I 'can't' do something.  Or I am a 'dreamer' or not practical or 'realistic'.

So instead of ambition there is anger and resentment for being 'held down by the man'.  

Even first generation children can be less likely to succeed than their parents if they let these attitudes infect them.  Look at our poster timbatu who believes there is so much discrimination towards chinese-americans, that there is no way to succeed.  It's crazy talk.

i think you went to the wrong country then.

I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...

You disgust me.

Take your hatred somewhere else.

i am sorry to say but your being ignorant. i think you lack education and reason. and making those statements just proved my point. your a disgrace to that picture.
bruce lee wasn't just about fast kicks and punches, he was a philosopher.
